Preventing Exposure To Bloodborne Pathogens
Concise Length 8 min
The focus of this program is preventing exposure to bloodborne pathogens. While most of us have jobs where we will never come into contact with blood or other body fluids, there are various situations where we may encounter potentially infectious materials. Employees must know what actions to take in these situations to protect themselves from exposure to bloodborne pathogens. Topics of the video include diseases caused by bloodborne pathogens, the Exposure Control Plan, how bloodborne pathogens are transmitted, jobs with occupational exposure, methods of protecting against exposures, handling potentially contaminated items and responding to exposure situations.
